We hiked the Four Lakes Loop near Alice Lake north of Squamish, BC, today. Lovely outing!
Didn’t see any toads or bears, but several folks with dogs : -)
I love Steller’s Jays — so bold, raucous, and iridescent
Yumi spotted this wasp’s nest – – love the patterns!
Amazing how synchronized replacing parts can be. Over the last month I’ve replaced first, one headlight; next, one turn signal bulb; and today, another headlight.
Thank goodness our pushing-20-years-old Subaru is of an age when that sort of stuff is easy to access for the home mechanic.
I know folks with “modern” vehicles who’ve had to have headlights replaced by dealers at $300 a pop because of the way they’re assembled.
These little cuties were having a great time in a small puddle today.
We took a ride on the Q to Q ferry service in New Westminster, BC, today. It’s a trial on for a couple of months. It was fun, and we also enjoyed rambling around Port Royal, where we’d never been before.

Running on weekends now
High-tech fare box works great!
The Fraser lives up to its moniker as a “working river.”
Even on a warm summer day it can be breezy and cool on the river
Ran across the fireworks barge
The old Samson V is looking rather rough. Wonder what its preservation status is?
My Value Village find today — a book presented to John Fraser, who was a Canadian federal Minister of the Environment, Fisheries & Oceans Minister, and House Speaker.
And a cool tidbit — he was born in Yokohama, Japan.
The sky has cleared of smoke in BC’s lower mainland, the sun is out, and the birds are glorious.
Apparently I just became fluent in Estonian in the course of writing one Tweet. . . : – )
Hm, that’s hard to see, but between my Tweet and my photo is a little link that says “Translate from Estonian.”
Not sure how I got into baking on a warm, poor air-quality advisory day, but the results are looking good, if a tad rough around the edges : -).
Fun shooting photos at the annual summer BBQ put on by local MLA Raj Chouhan and MP Peter Julian.

Dunno about you, but I’ve been downing liters of water, unsweetened lemon juice, cold green tea, and, um, OK, a beer now that the clock is ticking into the evening hours. . .
What about your pets? Make sure they are hydrating, too. Especially with cats, it may take a bit of effort, but make it fun, and they’ll drink.
Fortunately our cat has a well-established drinking routine, and seeks us out for mutual hydration.
